Ridgewood NJ, two Ridgewood High School Applied Engineering Club invent teams took first and second place in the national Thomas Edison Pitch Contest. “The finalists were chosen from 180 teams in 21 states across the country who entered the contest this year. The student teams from elementary, middle, and high school displayed wonderful creativity and inventive spirit for the 10th Anniversary Celebration.”
The Solar Aqua Tech team took first place in the contest! This team created a water bottle that converts undrinkable to drinkable using only sunlight and oxygen. This cheaper and easily accessible way to sanitize water can help make clean water more accessible to people in need all over the world.

The Inhale Rite team took second place in the contest! This team was inspired by one of their classmates with COPD to create a more efficient way to get more out of his inhaler during the stressful commotion of an asthma attack. The Inhale Rite would be an attachment to any inhaler that would help patients achieve the correct dosage out of their inhaler with less force and form.
Adding to the excitement, the Solar Aqua Tech team won a 3D printer for Ridgewood High School!
“We are very proud of how our students handled the virtual competition with creativity and resilience under an unprecedented school closing and with limited resources.” ~ Dr. Labowsky
